The Jose Fernandez Trade Rumors Just Started And Reporters Are Fighting About Them

Oh yeah, it’s hot fucking stove season. The most interesting and most frighteningly plausible (given the franchise involved) blockbuster deal being bandied about would involve the Marlins trading away starter Jose Fernandez, an insanely talented 23-year-old under team control for the next three years. »11/19/15 11:17am11/19/15 11:17am

This Is What Happens When You Have A Batting Champ's Old Phone Number

Joe Adel is a fine enough baseball player on his own, good enough to pitch for South Florida, but he’s no Dee Gordon. On the final day of the season Gordon went 3-for-4 to raise his average to .333, and give him the NL batting title. That’s when the congratulations started rolling in. To Gordon’s old number. Which is… »10/05/15 2:35pm10/05/15 2:35pm

Jose Fernandez Teases Evan Longoria After Giving Up A Home Run

Consider this friendly exchange between Jose Fernandez and Evan Longoria a change of pace from Jonathan Papelbon’s Fightin’ Around The League tour. The Rays third baseman absolutely socked an offering from the Marlins pitcher in the first inning of Thursday’s game, and in the next inning, Fernandez joked about it. »10/02/15 12:58pm10/02/15 12:58pm

Someone Appears To Be Trying To Hoax The Marlins President Out Of His Job

When the Miami Marlins sent Marcell Ozuna to the minors on July 5, there was more in play than just giving the slumping third-year outfielder a chance “to get his rhythm back,” as Ozuna’s agent Scott Boras said he was told. Whether Ozuna becomes eligible for arbitration after this season or next depends on how much… »9/03/15 9:17am9/03/15 9:17am

Woman Alleges Permanent Neck Injury Due To Marlins' Shark Attack

A lawsuit filed last month in Miami-Dade County court alleges a woman suffered serious and permanent injuries after being attacked by a fake shark during a 2013 Miami Marlins game. The Marlins, like most shitty (and a few good) teams, hold a mascot race between innings in a futile attempt to distract fans from the… »7/03/15 9:57am7/03/15 9:57am

Giancarlo Stanton Reportedly Has Broken Bone In Hand; Everything Sucks

Giancarlo Stanton has been crushing baseballs all season long, smacking out an MLB-leading 27 homers and driving in an MLB-leading 67 runs. So you can understand everyone’s trepidation when he announced some sort of hand injury suffered during yesterday’s game against the Dodgers. And it looks like a bad one. »6/27/15 9:47am6/27/15 9:47am

Cubs' And Marlins' Benches Clear, And Everyone Immediately Apologizes 

There were no punches thrown in the sixth-inning scrum during last night’s 7-3 Marlins win, and both sides quickly headed back to their own dugouts. In fact, it might have been one of the politest bench-clearings of all time, as the main instigator, Cubs outfielder Junior Lake, apologized unreservedly afterward. Heck,… »6/04/15 8:50am6/04/15 8:50am

Marlins Event Charges $100 To Hang Out With Players, Who Never Show

Here’s an ad featuring Marlins first baseman Michael Morse promoting the “Fish ‘N Chips Casino Party,” where “me and my teammates” will join anyone who puts up $100 to support the Marlins Foundation for a night of dancing, gambling, and entertainment.

Giancarlo Stanton Ruining Baseballs Almost Makes Up For Jeffrey Loria

Back in February, Sports Illustrated had a neat cover story on slugger Giancarlo Stanton, his injury last season, and the Miami Marlins’ new strategy of not fielding an embarrassing team. For a minute, the article really convinced the reader that owner Jeffrey Loria cared about his franchise. Stanton even gave a… »5/20/15 11:14am5/20/15 11:14am
